Pink Saturday discoveries..

..Or a reality sanity check for cabin fever..

  After what seemed endless miserable,days of constant snowfall,streets were  were deemed passable,and my walk and driveway newly shoveled..

Alas, Even poor bored Bubba G was tired of me being constantly underfoot. Warm rays of sunshine returned to our world!Smilingly,I braved the snowy,slushy streets on a mission.I needed  to find color in this white world..soooo where did I go?

yep.. the brightest and most colorful place which always provides medicine for my favorite for all seasons...and any and all reasons.. they never turn me away or let me down,,just smiles.. 

  These guys welcomed me with ready camera was okay with them

witchy friends busily stirred their brews.

                    Pumpkins peeked from behind pretty pink and green coleus..Color..everywhere! I spied COLOR everywhere I looked!         

a friend nestled between hot pink Mary Jane gardening boots.

                            hovered near a hot pink gardening tub..

                     Nearby, I found matching gardening gloves..but I was on a mission for Pink..true Flowers! Flowers of every shade and hue of PINK! Flowers! and more sanity needed flowers..but for PINK Saturday......
                                         I NEEDED PINK FLOWERS!

hot pink mmmmummms...
Soft baby pink ruffled azaleas..

and more Azalea ruffles in pink and white..
                        .more and more...............Hot pink  again!

                         Cyclamen with pretty green and white foliage..

and bouganvilla, bright pink of course..

                          and.../pretty pink and green caladiums..

                            bright pink foliage spears of the Ti plant 

               and more still.just plain pretty variagated pink and green foliage..

            a funny pink gooney bird hiding among colorful coleus..

..there were hibiscus of every color..but pink was the preferred color today

       favorite pick of the crop grapefruit!!
as I thanked my hosts at City Floral for allowing me to wander aimlessly with my camera..again.. I caught a glimpse of a smiling face.winking at me..
Nah...can't be..too early..we've barely had Halloween ..and still there's  the day for being thankful for friends and family and counting our blessings yet to come...looking back once again....yep..just what I thought..
It is ....!!!!I'd recognize that rosy pink smiling face anywhere..

definitely..I'll be back again..and again..smiling from ear to ear..
now..stroll on over  to Beverly's at How Sweet The Sound for more pink stuff..
